My Mini Onigiri Garden

I was in some Onigiri freaky mood lately, making these Japanese Rice Balls non-stop. I’ve been getting lots of “orders” for this popular Japanese dish. This is another addition to my Onigiri collection, for a group of my students this time. In my garden, there’re Salmon Wasabi, Spicy Shrimp (hay bee hiam), Green Tea with […]

Mini Salmon Burgers over Spinach Salad

Does a healthy and quick (under 30 minutes) dinner, made primarily from what I had on hand in my pantry sound good?  + That’s what this dinner was, and it was a change of pace, tasty, and approved by both husband and 5 year old as good eats.  I’ve made similar patties using canned tuna, […]

Is anyone else behind on everything?  I’m feeling that way lately!  Between the 4 yr old being on ‘spring break’ last week, and getting my taxes done (nothing like waiting til the last minute!) and generally over-committing myself, I’m finally catching up. So, when your busy like that, finding time to cook a yummy/healthy meal […]

Salmon, Spinach & Cannellini Bean Dinner

This is a favorite standby dinner because it’s fast, easy and you just can’t beat it for a healthy, fast meal.   The salmon provides an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, the spinach is full of vitamins and minerals, and the beans & parsley add more to that and are just darn good!   All of it’s […]
